It’s here! In less than an hour, registration will commence for the Bold Strokes Books festival here in Nottingham! I’ve more-or-less recovered from my Peak District Walk with Cari Hunter yesterday (there will be more on that, I promise) and now it’s time to shift into author mode alongside dozens of other BSB authors for the next two days.
If you’re looking for me specifically today—and, aw, bless you, aren’t you sweet—I’m on a panel at noon at Waterstones discussing the writerly life, and at 2:45pm I’ll be at the Mercure for a paranormal themed reading, where I’m going to be reading from the first story of Of Echoes Born, which is actually available here at the festival, a whole month early!
After that? Well, there’s an author Q&A with all the authors at 3:45pm in Waterstones (and to be honest with you, I have no idea what that’s going to be like, and I assume hilarity shall ensue), followed by a two-hour after-party to close down the first day of the festival at 5:00pm, which is at Faraday’s.
I’ll be carrying maple candies throughout this day, too, so if you’re in the mood for something sweet and Canadian, you don’t have to settle for me.
